This time-capsule 4-speed 1973 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 was ordered at J. E. Engles Chevrolet in Mineral Point, WI, on February 2, 1973. It was subsequently delivered new to the original owner on April 7, 1973, at a cost of $4,690.93. The documentation from that day forward is complete, including the window sticker, financing documents, original GM tags and notices, and the original vehicle inspection sheet from the dealer before the car was delivered. Included are both sets of original keys and the key punch tag.
The car includes most of the original factory paint. The interior is like new, yet remains original to the car. The original spare was preserved in newspaper and still retains the original blue-raised-letter protective coating. All the jack parts and tools are also included. The floors and chassis still retain the original red oxide primer.
The only items not original to the car are the reproduction Firestone 60 series tires (other than the spare), the battery, belts, hoses, spark plug wires, headliner and mufflers. The belts, upper and lower radiator hoses, and factory GM plug wires were retained by the original owner and are included with the sale. The original engine was carefully rebuilt in July 2015 with special attention to preserve every part possible due to a broken valve spring. Documentation of the engine rebuild is included. Neither the engine nor the engine bay was repainted to preserve the authenticity and originality of the car.
The engine currently produces just under 300hp and is documented by a dyno report. I purchased this car from the original owner over two years ago. The car has less than 30,000 original miles and the title states “actual” however no miles are indicated on the title. There is supporting documentation to attest to the mileage from new. The car presents as a 3-5 year old used car, it's that nice and incredibly well preserved. This car was never abused and it shows.
The paint and body still shows beautifully but please don't expect a factory fresh finish. The car does show some very small dents and small imperfections on close examination. The chassis is clean and rock solid, but it is also original and 47 years old. The interior looks almost as new. The engine bay is clean and detailed but also unrestored. Cars like this are nearly impossible to find.
